I have the Revell Impala and I wanted to get the Model Car Garage PE set for it, but then I noticed it is recommended for the AMT kit...

Has anyone used the set with a Revell Impala? Will it fit, especially the grille?

Thanks,

 

MATIJA

I'm giving this a bump before it gets lost on page 2...

Has no one ever used the MCG set on a Revell Impala?

I can't say about the impala but I've used the mcg 69 nova set on the revell 69 nova and some parts didn't fit like the grill and steering wheel, and both kits are 1/25 scale. Badges and scripts were close enough but the pe parts were slightly bigger.

Thanks for the response, Rich... Yes, it's the fitment of the grille I am most concerned about... Badges can be adapted to fit easily enough, but if the grille is a drastically different size, that might be an issue...

Does anyone else have experience with the Impala specifically?

I know the 63 impala set works great with the revell impala, but a 63, i do as well have the 64 impala revell kit but do not plan on the update set as it seems to be directed more towards amt and would probably have major fit issues.
